I dont think women should be able to play mens sports. The reason for this is because women go on and on about men having more rights then then. So if women were aloud to play mens sports why arent men able to?

I feel like girls should be able to play in men's sports, if girls want to play in men's sports that's there choice. Men are stronger then woman and that is proven "Men are physically stronger than women, who have, on average, less total muscle mass, both in absolute terms and relative to total body mass. The greater muscle mass of men is the result of testosterone-induced muscular hypertrophy. Men also have denser, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments." this was side by Neel Burton M.D. But if girls choose to play in male sports and they know that they are pysically weaker then the men . https://www.psychologytoday.com...

But that proves men are stronger.. what about human rights? They want equal rights which means men can play with the women. So if they can except that they can, but they cant complain about rights when it comes to mens sports. Women won't be able to compete against men in some sports, it just seems impossible. No women can guard LeBron James, or block JJ Watt, men can hardly accomplish that feat. If women compete and beat men in competition, it will cause violent responses from men, as well as the public making a bigger deal out of what it's supposed to be... Like Mo'Ne Davis winning Breakthrough athlete of the year for striking out 12 year old from 48 feet while Jordan Speith made history.
Allowing women to compete in men's sports could also discourage women. On average they perform poorly in comparison with men, and the best female is more than 10% behind the best male
